Mike Huckabee is trying to make hay of Ted Cruz’s statement that Gay Marriage is not a top three issue for him. He’s pretending that Cruz doesn’t think the issue is important even though Ted Cruz was the only other GOP candidate who was there for the Rally for Kim Davis and it was only a body or two strategically placed by team Huck that kept him off the main stage.
What Cruz has said is that Gay Marriage is not a top three issue for him, but you might be surprised considering all I’ve written on the topic & the culture wars is that it’s not a top 3 issue for me either.
Now I can’t speak for Ted Cruz or Mike Huckabee but here is my top 3 list.
Right now for me Issue #1 is the war on terror specifically the threat of ISIS.
You can’t fight a culture war if you’re dead and ISIS threatens not only the US but all of western civilization and in fact the world.
Then comes issue #2 for me, The Border and Illegal Immigration.
You can’t fight a culture war in your country unless you have a country and you don’t have a country if you don’t have borders.
and that’s not even talking about how important the border is to the war on ISIS or the threat from the various drug cartels that are walking across it.
Does Mike Huckabee think that the border is not a top three issue?
Now there are plenty of issues that are worthy of #3. There is the black lives matter, race relations and the war on cops, there is Gay Marriage and the broader religious freedom issue, there is Russia and NATO, China in the pacific and of course the Economy, but for me there is only one Issue that can go to #3
Abortion trumps all of those remaining issues including the cultural ones because once a country is safe (issue #1) and it’s borders secure (#2) you need to have a country that supports and values life.
Without valuing life, black lives can’t matter (only Abortion is more dangerous to black Americans than the gangs that are slaughtering them in the cities), without the lives thrown away in abortion you don’t have the manpower to for a military to confront Russia or China and unless you respect the lives of your own people you won’t find value in the lives of those oppressed by such totalitarians. Without the respect for life you throw away the people who drive the economy and you don’t respect the people who work within it and while Gay Marriage is a foolish narcissistic choice it can’t trump the right for a person to be born and make that foolish choice.
And anyways if it turn out that the current liberal meme concerning being “born gay” is right, the right and value of every unborn child becomes more critical because the moment homosexuality can be determined in vitro you will see a gay genocide. Every human life has value. Some people object to the murder of Gay people by ISIS, I object to their murder in the womb as well.
Now again I don’t know what is the priority for Mike Huckabee but if he is hitting Ted Cruz for not having Gay Marriage as a top 3 issue but for it to crack top 3 then one of the ones on my list can’t be on his list.
So tell me Governor, which issue ISIS, Immigration or abortion is not important enough to make the Huckabee top 3?
Inquiring minds want to know.
